    Keep in mind the natty CXL gets much darker fairly quickly. It's not the same brown as the Brown CXL of the PTB, but it does not stay that lighter/olive-ish hue for very long.

    I have a pair from Epaulet as well, and they are def Leydon last. I know that others have done the same shoe on Barrie, but I'm so glad to have found them on Leydon.

    yeah, i am definitely interested in the Leydon version... and why I was interested in the Epaulet makeup. Mike @ Epaulet forwarded me this pic of the Natty CXL which I personally like....

    Thank you so much sazon. Today I'd settle for a pair of Alden Ravello just about anything, it's that nice of a colour.

    Mine arrived on Wednesday last week and I wore them over the weekend a few times and to work today. Extremely comfortable and they seem like they will be very versatile.

    Anyone got fit pics of the CXL dover blucher? I'm considering getting a pair, but the shots from straight down don't really show what the shoe looks like in service.

    **cross post from the shoe care thread.**
    just bought these used aldens.
    any ideas on how to remove these stains? or a decent shoe cobbler in san diego?
    i already tried lexol, saphir renovator, kiwi wax. im considering alden restoration or b.nelson.
    thanks in advance for your advice.

    Wow, those are sweet. Congratulations. Assuming they are calfskin, I'll bet a couple separate applications of neutral cream will gradually take them out.
